john elway. it was the only scheduled talk. it was a stealth bomber in the background there. romney tried to tamp down expectations in the back. >> people want to know who is going to win? who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make? in my view, it's not so much winning or losing or even the people themselves. it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> playing off the enthusiastic crowd. romney had lines for the base. may even tested out a few zingers we might hear wednesday night. >> this is a home to focus on the family which is committed to preserving the foundation of america. we have to get the pipe laine from canada if i have to build it myself. >> it will kill america's entrepreneurship. >> that's the first time, by the way, romney talked about card check on the stump since the primaries. others call it the employee free choice act. it was a priority four years ago. it never passed because a few democ
to describe the pathway forward for america we would choose. >> i want to bring in john harwood and e.j. deion, author of "our divided political heart." thank you for coming on. we've been hearing this expectation game being played, the other side trying to make the other one seem as if they are the greatest debater who ever lived. let's start with a reality check and strength and weaknesses of these candidates. let's start with president obama. what is the strength in this debate? >> he's very well informed. he is a fluid speaker. he has served as president. he's got a tremendous amount of information at his command. he doesn't mess up very often. he simply doesn't create the memorable gaffe very frequently, although he's had a couple of things with "you didn't build that" and that sort of thing. >> his weakness? >> his weakness is he can come off as prophesorial and arrogant and long-winded. >> how about you? what do you think about the president? what has he got going for him? >> he should twitter because it would force him into shorter answers. he's got the advantage romney has a bunch of
of the candidates have experienced. president obama's last debate was against senator john mccain in the fall of 2008. while governor romney has had nearly two dozen debates during that gop primary. the obama campaign says the president's strategy is focused on shorter, crisper answers. the romney strategy, as reported in "the new york times" has the governor memorizing a series of zingers to try to hit the president with. let's bring in our "news nation" political panel for this monday. democratic strategist chris, national radio host michael, and also an msnbc contributor, and villa skype as you can tell from our shot there, steve, conservative radio show host. you have the visual disadvantage because you're skype. i'll let you start off first here. let me play what paul ryan, completely opposite of what chris christie said this sunday. his assessment of the debates. let's play ryan, please. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. look, president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> it's no secret, st
will be participating. thank to dr. howard and our thanks to time warner cable for getting us connected. john is our for student at miami university. he is a journalism and political major at the university. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. students and journalism students. let me take your question. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. -- so many americans see the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these
like ohio secretary of state john hughesstad have tried to kill it off. 30% of the ohio vote was cast before election day. this time around, it could be as high as 40%. the romney campaign has 36 field offices in the state of ohio. represented by the red dots on this map. the obama campaign has 96 field offices in ohio, the blue dots on the map. if the obama campaign has a better ground game, it can take full advantage of early votes and that's what they are trying to do. there's another potential in ohio. 500,000 voters have been taken off the rolls since 2008. a leading voting rights group has filed a request to make sure that the process was fully legal. joining me tonight and now is ohio state senator nina turner who has been on the forefront fighting this fight all along. you can see the folks behind her are ready to stay out and make maik sure they get voting squared away early. why are you going through this and how important is it? >> thanks for being with us, ed. it's vitally important that despite the dirty tricks going on in the state of ohio that folks in the state exercis
more than what john mccain had in 2008. latinos are the largest minority group in the united states. 23.7 million are eligible to vote in this election. that is a record but turnout is traditionally lower for this minority than white or black voters overall. some churches are working to turn out the latino and african american vote bypassing out voter registration cards in battle ground states and asking people to promise to participate in caravans to get souls to the polls on election day. and since latinos are not likely to vote for mitt romney it is not stopping him from trying to win them over. he is going to honor the temporary work permits that allow young people to stay in the country. we're back in just a minute. what not to wear. >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy.

are getting out to remind folks why it is so important to vote. you know, ed, congressman john lewis was here in ohio just this past friday at a program i was the emcee. for him to talk about what happened to him on bloody sunday, he had an apple and orange and two books standing in the ready position just to have the right to vote. this is the least we can do in the state of ohio to show solidarity for poor folks and the middle class and for women and for elderly folks and students to show that we understand how we got over and our soul looks back and wonders how we got over and we are not going to let some republicans stop us from exercising our right to vote. we stand up for the middle class in this state and in this nation and we are standing strong for our foremothers and forefathers. that's why the early vote is so important and that's why i think that the vote early is going to be bigger and better than it was in 2008 because we're going to show the republicans there ain't no stopping us now because we're on the move. >> all right. ohio sate senator nina turner with us tonight from ohi
their last rehearsals before the showdown in denver. mitt romney picks up an endorsement from john elway. people want to know who's going to win and score the punches. it's not winning or losing or the people themselves, the president or myself, it's about something bigger than that, these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> president obama rehearsing in suburban las vegas took a break to deliver pizzas to his local campaign workers. >> it's very nice, you know. we're -- you know, although basically they're keeping me indoors all the time, it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> and how much will the debate influence voters. we have our exclusive sneak peek at our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll coming up. >> sparks fly at the warren/brown debate. >> i
